Shakespeare once wrote that the course of true love never did run smooth. When embarking on a new relationship, it's natural, if not normal, to face many impediments. Time constraints. Conflicting opinions. Idealistic expectations. Age gaps, however, are more a minor detail than an insurmountable obstacle. This seems especially true amongst celebrities, as the age difference between several illustrious couples both past and present is considerable. And a number of those who have been fortunate enough to meet the loves of their lives refused to let a generation gap stand in their way.

More often than not, it's the men who are older than the women they date. This was true in the case of Chris Pratt, who is ten years older than his new wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger. Adam Levine was also born ten years before his wife, Behati Prinsloo. 43-year old Ryan Reynolds is eleven years older than his beautiful bride, Blake Lively. All three couples are separated by a generation gap, but owing to the love in their eyes when they look at one another, you'd never know it.

Older men dating younger women may be a stereotype, but it is hardly the norm. Heidi Klum found love with Tom Kaulitz, who is 16 years her junior. Nick Jonas looks absolutely smitten with his wife Priyanka Chopra, a woman ten years his senior. Regardless of his wife being thirteen years older, Hugh Jackman and Deborra Lee-Furness have enjoyed over twenty years of marital bliss. And French President Emmanuel Macron is 24 years younger than his wife and former high school teacher, Brigitte Trogneaux, whom he credits with helping turn him into the man he is today.

Age gaps characterize just as many same sex couples. Sarah Paulson is 31 years younger than her partner, Holland Taylor. Ellen DeGeneres is fifteen years older than her wife Portia de Rossi, and the two have been together since 2004 and married since 2008. And Matt Bomer found true love with his older publicist Simon Halls, without letting a 13 year age gap stand in their way. When love is in the air and sparks fly, these couples prove age is simply a number.

Perhaps the greatest testament to love being ageless is the fact that several of today's most celebrated older/younger relationships continue to stand the test of time. Warren Beatty is 21 years Annette Bening's senior, but they've been married since 1992 and are still be going strong. Beyonce and Jay-Z have been a power couple since the two began dating in 2001. Her being 12 years his junior didn't seem to bother either of them, as they married in 2008 and have three children. And Michael Douglas met Catherine Zeta-Jones, 25 years his junior, at a film festival in 1998. They married in 2000 and recently celebrated 19 years of wedded bliss.
